Psychological elements frequently obstruct the path to settlement. This paper offers mediators insights into the psychological drivers of human behaviour in conflict, providing a greater understanding of the diverse strategies adopted by parties in dispute.

Keywords: Psychology, mediation, conflict, emotions, self esteem
